Mushrooms & Chives

Grasshopper Soups

jose's monday When I woke up this morning all I could think about was that song sung by Dean Martin “Let it snow!  Let it snow! Let it snow!” By some miracle the majority of us we made it into the office after struggling through the snow drifts (that’s dedication to  The Amazing Blog for you!) And all we can think and talk about today is food.   Yes, hot scrummy comfort food. But the question is what to transport to work in our handbags that will be warming a delicious? Annoyingly today both our local delis are closed and the super market’s shelves are looking rather bare…

All eyes alighted on the very last pot of  Grasshopper soups. We have already consumed our way through their delicious Herby Tomato & Basil, and the fruity Spicy Lentil & Coconut. There is just one left for us to all draw lots over - the Creamy Mushrooms & Chives.

These soups have proved to be very popular with all of us. They are quick, easy (just add boiling water) and very portable (carry in handbags to work and eat at desks whilst on phone to journalists!)

The winning factor for me is that all the ingredients from Grasshopper (soups AND porridges) are 100% natural. They avoid any use of artificial flavourings, colours or additives. They also have the lowest levels of sugar and salt in comparison to similar types of products. Each of the soups are only around 100 calories – so it allows you to indulge in a little of whatever else you fancy. All pots are £7.50 for a case of 6 and £1.25 for an individual pot and are available online at Grasshopper  or in store at Whole Foods, Fresh & Wild and  selected branches of Waitrose.
